An Evening with David Sedaris in Evanston April 23
From a press release

facebook twitter google +1 reddit email

An Evening with David Sedaris is coming to Evanston's Nichols Concert Hall, 1490 Chicago Ave., Evanston, on Monday, April 23 at 7:30 pm.

Tickets are $68 ( plus fees ). They go on sale to the general public on Friday, March 16 at 10 am. This will be his only Chicago-area appearance on this tour, and he'll be reading from new, unpublished diary entries, talking about what he's reading right now—and, of course, signing copies of his books.

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America's preeminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.

Sedaris is the author of the collections of personal essays Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames,Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary, and Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, all of which have become bestsellers.

Sedaris's pieces appear regularly in The New Yorker and have twice been included in The Best American Essays. Since 2011, he can be heard annually on a series of live recordings on BBC Radio 4 entitled "Meet David Sedaris." David Sedaris' new book is a collection of his diaries, entitled Theft By Finding Diaries ( 1977-2002 ).
